CONDITION (refer to grading system below)
Vinyl : VG+
The vinyl is in very good plus condition, a few minor scuffs and surface marks are present, nice lustre,  slight crackle during the quiet intro to the first track. This record plays and sounds excellent with powerful dynamics. No writing on labels.

Cover : VG +
 Cover is overall in very good plus condition
Laminated front cover still intact without lifting,  there is some creasing bottom right hand corner , upper margin and top third of spine. Artist name and catalogue number very legible along spine. Some minor ink wear due to rubbing , along bottom margin of rear cover. No writing on cover.



Vinyl :Appears virtually flawless. Obviously handled with extreme care. Superb lustre to vinyl. A couple of minor surface sleeve scuffs (at most) may be present but are hard to see and do not affect sound. Plays perfectly with negligible noise.

Covers: Artwork close to perfect with only minor signs of wear and/or age. Minor impressions to the cover (due to the outer edge of the vinyl resting inside) may be present.


Vinyl : Minimal wear to vinyl, with excellent lustre. Minor surface scuffs (no more than 15% of the surface) are visible but only slightly. No scratches. Play is excellent with minimal noise.

Cover :Artwork close to perfect. Some impression to the cover (minor outer ring wear) but no ink wear. There may be some slight creases to the corners, but not wrinkled and obtrusive to the eye. The corners can show slight wear. No seam splits, writing on the cover or taped repairs.


Vinyl :The vinyl will show some wear, surface scuffs and some very light scratches to no more than30% of its surface. Still has great lustre and looks as though it has been handled with care. Plays extremely well with no obtrusive clicks or pops. There may be small writing on the record label(s).

Cover :Artwork looks clean with slightly more ageing. Flat white paper on back of cover may be slightly yellow due to ageing. No stains or mildew from water damage. Some minor wear to the seams or spine, but no tears or holes popping through. The corners may be slightly dog eared and there may be small writing on front and/or rear of cover.


Vinyl :The vinyl appears to have been well played but still has some lustre. The vinyl may be faded, slightly grayish, because of the surface scuffs and light scratches to greater than 30% of the surface. There will almost always be some surface noise when the record is played. The dynamics are still excellent however, overpowering the surface noise. The surface noise will be minor crackle or a slight hiss,but should only be heard in between tracks or in low musical passages. The occasional click or pop may be present but no jumps or skips. The record still plays very well. There may be small writing on the record label(s).

Cover :The cover looks worn and used but still has some attractiveness. There may be some seam splitting and ring wear, where the ink has begun to wear off, plus some writing on the front and/or rear cover. It will look aged and more yellowish due to contaminants in the air. No taped seams or water damage.


Vinyl :The record looks very well played, dull, grayish and with many scuffs and scratches. It still plays OK without skips or jumps but has distracting surface noise, such as crackle or hiss that is continually heard plus some loss of dynamics caused from grooves being worn. Several loud clicks or pops may be present during play. There may be small writing on the record label(s).

Cover :Cover is very worn, however, some artwork of value can still be noticed. Seam splits(possibly taped and repaired, but only with scotch tape), ring wear with much ink loss, some writing and tears may be present.
